Boxing’s main event on Saturday will be on ESPN+ as Top Rank is showcasing Janibek Alimkhanuly. Denzel Bentley is on the B-side with new Top Rank signee Seniesa Estrada. One card, two title fights, it should be a good one. Boxing odds on the Janibek vs Bentley main and co-main fight, with picks and bets from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network, are coming up. DING DING!
Boxing Odds, Picks, And Bets: Janibek vs Bentley
Denzel “2 Sharp” Bentley: 17-1-1 (14 KO), 27 years old, HT 5’11”, Weight 159 lbs
Strength of Denzel Bentley’s opponents are not there. The one step up in competition Bentley has made he was knocked out in the third round against Felix Cash. The orthodox Brit steps up to fight Janibek Alimkhanuly for the WBO Middleweight World Title when nobody else would. Demetrius Andrade moved up in weight to avoid a mandatory against Janibek, Gennadiy Golovkin is/was chasing paper against Canelo Alvarez, Jermall Charlo is out with an injury. After them, the middleweight division weakens. Props to Bentley, but he received this opportunity because nobody else wanted it, knowing the danger Janibek poses to one’s career without much compensation since Janibek is still on the come up.
Janibek “Qazaq Style” Alimkhanuly: 12-0 (8 KO), 29 years old, HT 5’11”, Weight 159.6 lbs
After examining their records, it is really hard to bet against Janibek Alimkhanuly. The southpaw has won his last six fights via stoppage. “Qazaq Style” has good resume-boosting wins in his last three bouts against Rob Brant, Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, and Danny Dignum. Janibek should be able to handle his business on Saturday night, the only thing is when will he do it and how?

Janibek vs Bentley Boxing Odds: Janibek (-2500), Bentley (+950), O/U 4.5 Rounds
It’s a pretty simple handicap. Janibek has unbelievable power and he is hungry for the vacant middleweight world title. Eleven of Denzel Bentley’s 17 wins have come against boxers with a losing record. The first time he took a step up in competition against a fellow countryman, Cash, he displayed a chin of glass and collapsed in the third round. A Janibek KO prop is juiced out at -650 so we have to resort to a rounds prop. I think that Kazakhstanian disposes of the Brit prior to the 13:30-minute mark.

Seniesa Estrada vs Jazmin Gala Villarino

Top Rank Boxing is dipping its toe back into the women’s boxing scene. Seniesa Estrada will make her ESPN debut against an inferior opponent. At -3500 Estrada’s moneyline has no value. With a 22-0 record, Estrada doesn’t have many knockouts (nine). I think we say a lengthy domination that allows fans to get a good look at her. I like Estrada to win by decision at +125.
